McCaskle is using the usual nonsense to scare the American people, but will not talk about Obamacare’s problems.
Fix it? When?
The exchanges are going to help all these people? She is lying through her teeth.
Not to mention a lying, spinning bich.
A typical she-RAT, just like Hitlery and The Washrag.
I haven’t seen it but did see O’Reilly eat his lunch over media bias, which Kurtz refused to acknowledge as existing.
Watched Wallace get real snarky with Tucker Carlson this morning. It was a side (Dem/Lib/Progressive) of Wallace I figured existed, but it came out blatantly this morning.
NRA...Lapiere doing awesome!
Now, he has a mother who lost her daughter in Aurora...ALL FEELINGS....Lets not fix the problem..lets just make sure that there are not “more guns”.
Actually she is agreeing with a lot of Lapiere, but then goes off into emotionalism about “restrictions” and of course Gregory focuses on the FEELINGS.
Kimberly Strassel and Smiley Tavis???Oh this should be good.
Strassel is awesome!!!!
Notice the liberals speaking the liberal line of how Repubs are going to be blamed. Perhaps they will get the credit of the shutdown.
Now Rove beating up on Cruz that he didn’t go begging to the GOPe.
End it, don’t mend it. The Dems and their acolytes in the MSM are wont to say that Obamacare is the law of the land and that the Reps can’t repeal it and should move on. Funny, but the Dems never allow the law of the land to stop them in changing the laws. DOMA was the law of the land.
Panel attacking Cruz, especially Karl Rove. Surprise surprise!
Train wreck? Speaking of which. Wonder if Max Baucus (D-MT) will side with Cruz and other pubbies in stopping this atrocity?
Brit Hume - proRomney proRove proObamaCARE:
“They (conservatives) don’t have the votes”
and the liberal Obama-backer Hume
actually blames conservatives for HIS own fear of
an impending shutdown.
Amy Walter - “could not agree more”.
“Republicans have no strategy”
Wallace (smiling) “Could not disagree with that”.
Rove lauded by Wallace: Blames Cruz for not
discussing it with Rove and Romney. Rove demands
to know what is going, and having respect ($$$$).
Shameless protector of Obama.
“Republicans do not have an advantage.”
D. Kucinich: “This is about political theatre.
There will not be a gov’t shutdown.”
He is the ONLY adult, speaks clearly and
defends the people
Wallace interrupts him and “reminds” him
that he supports RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE
(must have been a signed Agreement
before the panel).
Summary: The FOX “News” panel is one-sided,
Did that Sarah Palin punch leave a bruse on your lip?
Rove hates the Tea Party. Hey Karl, when was the last time you were right about any election? What if he is wrong and we are right about the Repubs standing for something rather than nothing?
You forgot to add that Wallace noted that Kucinich supports single payer and that Kucinich said that we will continue to have these problems as long as private insurance companies are involved.
I doubt it, after all...he's a RAT. They'll say one thing, and then vote as they're told.
To have Kookcinch on FOX who is an open communist is embarrassing.
-— Panel attacking Cruz, especially Karl Rove. Surprise surprise! -—
Man, you have a strong stomach. I can’t watch.
What struck me about the Cruz/McKaskill debate is how easy this could be to win, if Republicans stuck together.
I think Ted will cross the finish line, even with a bunch of knives in his back.
He did not say private insurance companies, he said for profit which is an attack on capitalism. Not to mention Blue Cross and others are not for profit. They want nationalized HC and enslave everyone.
23 seconds - MSNBC - Meet the Press
Lee: We’ve Got 46 Votes
"The Architect" my......foot.
Your logic as usual is impeccable. Problem is we need to be dealing with an opponent who cares about something more than his next political move.We aren't.
All the regime cares about are numbers. And they have had the debt ceiling debacle figured out for some time.It was even timed to start while Syria ended as predicted by some here. Whether or not Reid sends the bill back to Boehner or does nothing probably won't matter.
I listened to an audio clip between Mark Levin and Ted Cruz and it appears the game plan is for Boehner to simply send individual funding bills for each dept,possibly one at a time, to Reid and then see what happens.
This method is only good if your opponent actually cares if people suffer or not!
All they care about once again is political gain nothing else.
Unless the Dear Leaders numbers start to fall which is unlikely since the media will be covering his skinny ass 24/7 and have already started with how terrible a govt. shut down would be and how it will cost jobs all due to us, he will do nothing but blame us over and over.The worse things get, the more he will blame us. And, this particular regime will make sure things are bad. As bad as they can make them in hopes of yet more politic again,its all they value. Even though its 100% his fault the govt. is shutting down, with the media lying for him he stands a very small chance of losing or incurring falling numbers.
I doubt we win this one.
Meanwhile, the real scandals that lead to impeachment and everyone here know which ones they are; Benghazi, Egypt, IRS, nsa,go unchecked,untalked about and as good as forgotten.
The real agenda of following through on the scandals which could lead to impeachment or at the very least a totally weakened Democrat party will now be tossed aside. IMHO, we need to pick our battles.
Here on Free Republic, I do not need to add the next sentence!
Actually though I can’t discuss it I got a taste of that yesterday. Seems the GOP-Elites disdain for Tea Pat types is boundless.They better start liking us cause we are here to stay!!They are the endangered species not us!!
Thanks for the summary... I’m stuck in the Sao Paulo airport, and can’t anything on the shows this week!
The Republicans need to point out that Obama has already postponed the company mandate, issued many waivers...yada, yada.
If this is the so-called law of the land, what right does the President have to implement only those parts that do not displease his donors.
And what about those congressional staffers now exempt from this?
If this is the law of the land, what right does Obama have to only put into effect those parts that please him?
I don’t see many Republicans reporting this truth.
Britt Hume, Mike Wallace....they just roll with the Blue Blood Republicans....the hell with what the MAJORITY of America wants.
Here’s how to explain it....
...a couple of months ago Rand Paul stood at a filibuster in the senate because the administration would NOT admit that they’d never authorize a drone to spy on an American citizen.
Paul had a couple of supporters but mostly he did it himself.
Now Rand Paul did not HAVE to do this. He could have taken no action and no doubt had their been weeks to discuss this action the fine, fine Karl Roves of the world would have dismissed it as silliness...ineffective.
and yet, my lying ears heard Eric Holder, the finest AG this country has ever had, pressured to admit publicly that no, America would not target its citizens via drone without any court order.
Why did this happen?
Because of Paul’s action which caused Americans, NOT the political elite who could care less about us, to stop and scratch heads and wonder, well WHY don’t the administration just say it for God’s sake.
This happen because a Republican legislator DID something.
so now the Republican legislators are doing something and I know what Cruz is doing is what the American people want.
Now we know who belongs solidly to our political class and who does not.
I will not ever support a single one of them out lambasting this action.
THEY NEED TO DO SOMETHING!!
So Cruz does and he’s pilloried endlessly.
they all make me ill.
He also threw out the BIG LIE that insurers should be "nonprofit".
Sometime back, here in Maine...the sole hosting company position was given to Harvard Pilgrim, a "nonprofit" for the floundering "Dirigo" state-run health plan.
The original parent company was Anthem (a Blue Cross-like entity) who is a regular private insurer, and who originally received the host position by being the only one to bid on it.
It turns out that the "nonprofit" Harvard's operating costs are far higher than the evil taxpaying, profit taking Anthem.
Everyone knows that, but they are trying to polish a turd and this is political theater to show they stand for something. If not it is time for a new Party what will.
Our group here have gathered enough signatures to stop Light Rail in Portland and the measure will pass. We stopped a billion dollar boondoggle in a liberal state. That is what standing up can do.
Zero used Syria to get here. People are still dying in Syria they don't care. When this is over, the debate ceiling debate, and people may well suffer hard to tell, zero will go on to amnesty. Whatever death/suffering he leaves in his wake is irrelevant!! It's all about their agenda and how they achieve it. The well being of the country, well being of people doesn't matter to the regime.All that matters is the agenda and their advance to a communist nation.
-— I listened to an audio clip between Mark Levin and Ted Cruz and it appears the game plan is for Boehner to simply send individual funding bills for each dept,possibly one at a time, to Reid and then see what happens.

Of course they don’t. Zero doesn’t even care if Rome burns. But the rest of the rats want to save their own skins. And even the media won’t be able to cover for Dingy Harry when he rejects funding for the military.
Besides, what’s the alternative? Surrender?
I'm beginning to learn that first hand. If its a rrrrrrino war they want good luck! We will win that one every time.
Can’t wait to see it in a little while here....Wallace has a lot of anger and it usually comes out sideways! He is one angry dude trying to cover his inadequacies. Sarcastic, with that sarcastic smile.
Don’t forget, Obozo has had a number of stumbles lately. He is not the darling of DC and not exactly loved by the people. Weld Obamacare to him and the DNC with a very public fight. His mediots will not be able to save them if the American people turn their backs.
Rove flounders these days, like a little fat kid on the playground trying to get back into the game.
I would prefer to know why the GOP is so chicken!!!
What if the polls are wrong and people really don’t care if the gummit shuts down? These polls are to scare politicians who follow rather than lead.
CRUZ/PALIN IN 2016 (if we have elections)
While I may not agree with his strategy 100% I will support him 1,000 % should he run for potus.
Cruz on FNS blames a govt. shutdown on Obama and Harry Reid. Answers Chris Wallace regarding other Republicans bashing Cruz. “I am not going to stoop to that level. There is another problem in Wash. DC. career politicians on both sides.” Points out how Obama and Reid are ignoring the will of the American people.
Yeah, especially if it's true.
Blue Cross and others are not for profit.
Not for profit? It depends on how you define the term.
Prior to the Tax Reform Act of 1986, organizations administering Blue Cross Blue Shield were tax exempt under 501(c)(4) as social welfare plans. However, the Tax Reform Act of 1986 revoked that exemption because the plans sold commercial-type insurance. They became 501(m) organizations, subject to federal taxation but entitled to "special tax benefits" under IRC 833. In 1994, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association changed to allow its licensees to be for-profit corporations. Some plans are still considered not-for-profit at the state level.
And there are plenty of other private insurance companies that are profit making in the conventional sense.
-— I would prefer to know why the GOP is so chicken!!! -—
They’ve sold out for the lifestyle. I think it’s as simple as that.
Send him letters....that gets their attention. E-mail, e-mail, e-mail.
We had a speaker yesterday who was told that he had to sign on to a $400 million dollar deal for a miami-dade county football stadium that "it was a done deal."
He said no.!
He,a mayor of a small city in Dade,organized 20 other mayors of other cities in Dade and they killed the move to spend 400 million of the citizens money on a stadium. It can be done,buttttttt. Pick your battles.
Good points all. They need to be repeated over and over again.
